2021 ELECTIONS: CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR NOMINATION FOR ELECTION TO IPA OFFICE

In the IPA's forthcoming elections, the following positions will be elected:


21 Representatives to the IPA Board (7 from each IPA region, to take office in July 2021)


ALL PROPOSALS FOR NOMINATION MUST REACH THE IPA BY 31 JULY 2020

c/o Stephen Thierman (email: steve@ipa.world). No proposal received after this date will be accepted unless it is specifically invited by a Nominating Committee (eg. in cases where an insufficient number of proposals have been received).  All Representative posts will be voted upon in the relevant region only.


To qualify, candidates in these elections must have either:

1) a proposal from a Component Society or the Regional Association (or any of its affiliates), or
2) a proposal from 10 IPA Members.


REPRESENTATIVES TO THE BOARD (regionally elected):

Proposals for the 21 Representative positions will be forwarded to the relevant Regional Nominating Committees. Each Regional Nominating Committee will aim to put forward between 11 and 14 candidates for the 7 positions within its region. 

16 of the current Representatives are eligible for re-election, but will not be slated automatically and must be proposed in the same way as other nominees. 

These 5 Representatives have served two full consecutive terms and are therefore NOT eligible for re-election:

Europe:
Serge Frisch
Franziska Ylander

Latin America:
Jorge Kantor
Silvia Resnizky

North America:
Gunther Perdigao


The rosters of the Regional Nominating Committees for the 2021 elections are:

Important note: Names proposed will not automatically be put forward for election. The Nominating Committees will decide on the names that appear on the final slate according to IPA criteria. The IPA Procedural Code document Rules, Limits and Procedures for IPA Elections can be found on the IPA's website here.

Please note that, except with the Board's express consent, a member of a Provisional Society or Study Group, who is not also a member of a Component Society or the Regional Association, is not eligible to run for elected office.
